Dixon Pays Tribute: Introducing the ‘Big Bud’ Signature Snare

June 21st 2024

ST. LOUIS, MO – Dixon is celebrating Gregg Bissonette’s 10-Year Artist Anniversary with a special signature snare drum honoring his father, Bud Bissonette. Bud not only gave Gregg his start by sitting in with the Bud Bissonette Band, he spent his retirement providing cartage service for Gregg in and around Los Angeles for over 18 years.
Dixon Brand Manager Jim Uding explains “when Gregg pitched a snare drum that produced the iconic warm, boisterous sounds of the 70s and 80s, we never could have anticipated the impact it would have across the kit.”

Set it up as a side snare for fat backbeats and reinforced fills. Go SNOM to update your sound and expand your grooves. Even keep it between the knees for classic covers and power ballads. It’s your new versatile powerhouse. Left, right or center – turn to Bud.
